Death Penalty is a very ominous punishment to discuss. It is probably the most controversial and feared form of punishment in the United States. Many are unaware, but 31 of the 52 states have the Death penalty passes as an acceptable punishment. In the following essay, I will agree and support Stephen Nathanson's statement that "Equality retributivism cannot justify the death penalty. " In the reading, "An Eye for an Eye?", Nathanson gives objections to why equality retributivism is morally acceptable for the death penalty to be legal.
In Martin Luther Kings "Letter from Birmingham Jail", he expressed his respect for the Law as a whole. Although he expresses his respect, he does differentiate between the two kinds of law that are present in society; which is a just law, and an unjust law. King advocates for obeying just laws, he mentions that one has a moral obligation to obey just laws. However, he does note one also has a moral obligation to break unjust laws. The reasoning for his disobedience to unjust laws is explained using St. Augustine’s theory “An Unjust Law is no Law at all”.
If the criminal process’s disciplinary is effective to prevent crime. The crime control theory would result in the state official is likely to violate the freedom of the people easily. The state official is authorized to use the extensive compulsory legal in order to effectively prevent crime. The result is that the court does not agree to hear evidence obtained illegally that will not appear at all or are very sparse.
The differences The due process model is pegged on the belief that it would be better if a criminal found innocent goes free rather than have one innocent person in jail. On the other hand, the crime control model argues that it is better to have a innocent person detained, questioned, tried and found innocent then let free than have a society full of criminals roaming
The rule is intended to prevent police officers from violating the rights granted by the Fourth Amendment. Thus, evidence obtained by the police that violates the Fourth Amendment cannot be used to convict someone accused of a crime.

It removed terms like mental illness or disorder, which caused confusion due to the digression of legal insanity from medical insanity. In its place, it defends the accused when he/ she is incapable of knowing the nature of the act or that the act is either wrong or contrary to law. It involves the narrower test of incapacity rather than lack of knowledge, which allows a person who generally possesses cognitive function but didn’t at the time of the offence, to be excused. The operative word here being ‘at the time of doing it’ has led to allegations of misuse of the defence.
When crimes have been committed, a selection of defenses may be brought into by a defense attorney in order to negate a guilty verdict. In law, it is known that an individual should not be held
People may argue against Jamison by saying that she challenge the common sense that people should be responsible for what they have done. In the other words, if one committed crime, he deserve the correspondence punishment under United State legal system. When the correspondence punishment happen to be incarceration, he should be incarcerated. This argument is weak because the fact that Charlie does not deserve incarceration in Beckley does not necessary leads to the generally conclusion that people should not be responsible for what they have done.

The answer to this question is no, it is moral wrong, and does not follow the guidelines of the principle of utility. In all legal aspects of this process of the death penalty, it violates the principle consistently. From the realm of the cost aspect, the unfair representation of the prisoner, and the cruel and unusual execution methods, each creates clear and cohesive evidence that the death penalty cannot be ethically justified.

Some say it is just not suitable for this society, where constitution guarantees the human rights, and the conception that human rights are equally applied to every human being, exists. On the other hand, some say that death penalty is needed to clean and organize this world contaminated by crimes, and is a tool to make an ideal, crime-free world. I cannot deny that human rights are important, but if we keep pushing with human rights, nothing would be done to save furthermore victims, and that is basically out of its purpose to guarantee human rights; victims’ rights will be violated by death, and that is not a result wanted. It might not make sense, but we have to follow the utilitarianism, which encourages sacrifice of the small and less, for the big and many. We can save furthermore victims in future, use taxes in places where really need it, and comfort every family who suffers from such tragedies like family member’s death, by using death penalty for violent

The case Foster v. Chatman is a very difficult and unpleasant case. The case highlights the embarrassing and disgraceful episodes of the United States’ history. Racism, discrimination and prejudice have occurred, since the inception of the country. The United States’ pledge of allegiance reads, “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” This statement is a very strong declaration, when it is often said, it can lose its sticking meaning, however this pledge can be deceptive.
